Soft top zippers

Anymore i can't zip my back window without the zippers separating ! I tried spraying with wd-40 but i think its just stretched. Does anybody know a solution?

Use paraffin wax on your zippers much better result.

Or soap. I've done that and it worked.
Putting on a coat is better than putting on my soft top.

Will either one keep the zipper from separating? Besides the zipper , the top is in good shape.

If it separating you need to bend the teeth back to shape. I used a shoe repair shop to fix my drivers side zipper. $10 and took about 25 minutes while I waited.
